A Florida Man picked the wrong car to break into. Little did he know that the owner saw it all and has a special relationship with his community.
When Tommy Ford woke up at 3AM to an alarm on his Ring camera alert system, he probably didn’t believe what he was seeing. On his screen, Ford saw a Florida Man trying to break into his car. What the burglar wasn’t aware of is that Tommy Ford is the Bay County Sheriff! Yup, that was the Sheriff’s personal vehicle that this Florida Man was trying to steal from!
Once the motion-activated lights turned on, the would-be burglar hightailed it out of there. Sheriff Ford called 911 and Lynn Haven PD and Bay County deputies quickly arrived on scene. Thankfully the vehicle wasn’t broken into.
Sheriff Ford used this incident as an opportunity to remind citizens of Bay County to make sure that their car doors are locked.
No word on if the perpetrator has been caught.
